About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Ooooh, what a gorgeous post. Beautiful streets and shopfronts and I'm crazy about the automatons (is that the right word?); they seem quite magical. You've made me long for a seaside vacation of my own now.

I'm also pretty much head over heels about your new color palette. I think a bit of something muddy is like salt in the soup. :)

Oh Lucy what great buys! GO TEAM GIRL GO!!!

Lovin those little egg cups but the cottages by the sea are absolutely delightful...where will you put it?? (It reminds me of a pastel seaside version of your Attic 24 banner.)

Lucy Does Dorset so well! Have loved your posts this week, thanks for sharing x


Absolutely love the little row of houses and seagulls ... you are giving your family lots of lovely memories xx


What a lovely time you've had. I love Lyme Regis too. Browsing the shops and walking along the cobb. Also wasn't it where they filmed The French Lieutenant's Woman with Meryl Streep? One of my favourite films :) Maggie xx

I have loved each and every one of your holiday posts. One day I will visit the English seaside. I will!


Oh yeay, lovely pictures of Lyme! I both live and work in Lyme so get to see this loveliness every day but I really enjoy seeing it through someone else's eyes. I should have hung my happy flower decoration in my office window as a hello! Vickie x

Lynn Dudley-Taylor

I have always loved the seaside plastic displays!! Brings back fond memories of family holidays to Selsey, simply lovely!! Thank you for the reminder. Lxx

Thank you - it's POURING with rain here, my 4 year old is pushing her luck and I have all-day morning sickness... but yay to your blog! I have a feeling I will be reading this again and again as I count the days off to our holiday in Lyme! Love the ochre-y colours added to your pallette as well x

LOve it,love it all!The little sea side village is SO YOU :)Hooky is looking nice too.What are the little tiny mushrooms?It all makes me want to visit England so much!Have a good one.


Wow Lucy what another amazing post - I can hardly wait the five weeks until we're there too!

More than anything I am dreaming of some retail pootling around Lyme Regis because we never even got out of the car last time we were there (and I've made a careful note of all those lovely beachy cafes you've mentioned too!)

Better get saving pronto! Thanks so much for sharing all these beautiful memories.
Take care

Lucy I have really enjoyed reading about your seaside vacation! I long to travel out of the US and see many other countries. Thank you for sharing your life with us!

Fab. I feel like I've been on holiday now which is marvellous because I haven't been on holiday anywhere for about 5 years and it doesn't look like we'll be having a holiday this year either (thanks, husband-working-on-a-contract-that-never-seems-to-end), so if you don't mind, I'll just go on vicarious holiday with your lot instead!

Nikki Relffe-Arnold

Lucy I have loved, loved, loved your holiday "serial" over the last three days...I could almost smell the sea whilst reading your posts. It never ceases to amaze me that you and your family are of that rare breed of people who spend happy holiday days doing simple things together and enjoying every moment and I thinks it's absolutely lovely. Your love of the sea comes across so strongly and I for one won't ever be surprised if you suddenly blog that you are all moving to Lyme Regis such is the love you have for it obvious in your posts. So glad you had a wonderful family rich week :-) Nikki


I enjoyed your post hun. Looks like you all had fun. Love the shops in the pastel colors..


Lucy, the pictures are fantastic! It really is one of my favouite places. I told Caroline to watch out for her lovely shop appearing on here. Your photo of it is much better than my last one I took in the dark!!
Thanks for the mention too.

Fiona Tomlinson

Lucy I have enjoyed this years holiday posts more than anything you have posted before, you totally enjoy what I enjoy being beside the sea, oh happy days indeed !!

I love Lyme Regis too especially as the shops are so unique and there always seems to be something new that has opened every-time we visit. I discovered Eclipse sometime ago and haven't tried the Watchhouse as every-time I am drawn back to Eclipse their hot chocolate is something else they have a huge machine fill of melted chocolate.
I'm sorry glad I live in Dorset and don't have to leave.


Could have sworn you would have purchased that little caravan pillow in Ruby's window. However, you made some lovely purchases. Thanks for sharing your visit.

Tangled Sweetpea

Oh we love love love Lyme! And Ginger Beer is one of my favourite shops there! Your photos are beautiful and brought back so many wonderful memories of our trip there!

Wonderful. In Canada our children play on the beach with "shovel and pail" instead of "bucket and spade". Is St.Catherine the patron saint of those who spin, as well?


Definitely I need to book a ticket to go there


This really has inspired me to go to Dorset. Looove the yellow house!
Thanks for sharing.
